Actresses Jenny Slate and Anjelica Huston visited Seattle this week as part of the Seattle International Film Festival.

Slate was in town Saturday with co-star Abby Quinn and writer/director Gillian Robespierre. Their film Landline was the selection for SIFF’s Centerpiece Gala.

"I want to make films that go to festivals, I want to meet people who love movies, I want to be able to talk about my work,” Slate said. “You do the work on set and that's great, but another part of it is bringing your thing to a community and saying, ‘I was involved in this because I thought it was something that we could all have together.’"

Landline opens in Seattle on July 28.

Huston was in town Wednesday for a special tribute night. She received an on-stage award for Outstanding Achievement in Acting before the audience watched her new film Trouble. It will screen again on June 10 at 4 pm at AMC Pacific Place.
